WILTON - Wilton's first liquor store is now open. Ancona's Wines and Liquors made its first sale Wednesday.

The store's opening comes after a several year battle to lift the town's prohibition on liquor stores.

Votes in town approved the change in November.

Mitch Ancona, the owner of the store, was a key part in lifting the ban by running a group called ?Wilton for Wine.?
